The days are getting longer and temperatures are getting warmer in Brandon, which means you’re going to be counting on your air conditioner to keep comfortable. The more you utilize your air conditioner, the greater the possibility you’ll be require AC repair.
We have three warning signs to look out for and some advice to let you know when it’s time to call in the professionals from Brandon Heating and Plumbing to arrange air conditioner service.
- Air from vents isn’t cold – This is probably one of the most noticeable proof that your air conditioner has the need for repair. The first thing you’ll want to do is check your thermostat fan setting and ensure that it’s set to “auto” rather than “on”. If it’s set to “on” your AC will continually blow air even if it’s not immediately being cooled. If your air conditioner is set to “auto” and it isn’t able to get to the temperature set on your thermostat, that signals that it’s time to call and get it checked out.
- Decreased air flow – This concern isn’t as apparent as the previous, but if you suspect the air coming from your vents isn’t flowing as strongly as it had previously, there could be a problem. If you haven’t changed your air filter for some time, that would be the first place to check, your problem could be as simple as a dirty air filter. If that’s not the case and you’re still experiencing troubles, you’ll want to call the professionals at Brandon Heating and Plumbing.
- Strange sounds – Bizarre noises coming from your air conditioner isn’t a welcome sign. If you hear any banging or rattling coming from your air conditioner, putting on headphones so you can’t hear the sounds isn’t going to solve the problem. The moving parts within your air conditioner can become loose through wear and tear and will have to be fixed by a professional.
Try to be aware of how your air conditioner sounds and works when it’s running well. This will make it easier to catch when things aren’t running properly.
Keeping up with annual maintenance is another way to diagnose any minor problems before they become major problems. If you haven’t yet booked your annual maintenance appointment with Brandon Heating and Plumbing, now is the perfect time.
